II Inc., of Alpharetta, Ga., is voluntarily recalling about 20,000 Pop Links
toys. The tips on the links that snap together like a chain can break off,
posing a choking hazard to young children. Kids II has received 11 reports of
tips on the links breaking. No injuries have been reported.
Pop Links model 883 with a date code "ND1" molded on the tips of the links are involved in this recall. The toys come in a variety of bright colors with unique shapes and various textures. There are 12 links in a package. The links snap together, creating a chain of links. Mass merchandise and juvenile specialty stores nationwide sold the Pop Links between June 2001 through November 2001 for about $4. Kids II Pop Links that do not have a date code "ND1" are not subject to this recall.
should immediately take the Pop Links toys away from young children and return
them to Kids II for a replacement toy. Consumers can contact Kids II toll-free
at (877) 325-7056 between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
